Henryk M Broder – Publicist and Political Provocateur

Henryk M. Broder is a TV-peacock and media personality, not at all your stereotypical life’s-not-fair, I-can’t-get-a-job dissident. For one, Broder is far too likable and charismatic for exclusion. For another,… well. Listen, Broder is invited to many shows, especially in the main stream. The reason for that is that script writers often need a querulant [a grouser] or professional troll who makes outrageous statements. This over-presence has enabled Broder to become the jack-of-all trades, constantly dishing out articles, columns, polemics, and guesting in political shows. His secret: “I once met this famous artist who hugged me and said: Mr. Broder, Mr. Broder, I envy you! I wish I was a Jew like you! Then I, too, could say anything I want.“
